Daren Kagasoff Lands Lead in Fox’s “Delirium” Pilot
We are sad to see Daren Kagasoff say goodbye to “The Secret Life” but super happy he may return to our TV soon!
The 25-year-old has landed a role in the Fox pilot “Delirium” according to the Hollywood Reporter. The show is based off the books by Lauren Oliver and Daren will play Alex, the object of Lena’s (Emma Roberts) affections. He’s a uniformed police officer who on the surface appears tough, smug and a rigid enforcer of the government’s rules. Underneath, he’s a man with a secret agenda: he’s a member of an anti-government group led by Lawrence Tack, one that is infiltrating the most oppressive elements of society while hiding the fact that he still has a mind of his own. A vehement opponent of the government’s plan to eradicate love, Alex finds himself intensely attracted to Lena. To explore a future together, he must protect her from receiving the government’s curative procedure and convert her to his cause.
The show takes place in a world in which love is deemed illegal and is able to be eradicated with a special procedure. With 95 days to go until her scheduled treatment, Lena Holoway (Emma Roberts) does the unthinkable: she falls in love.
The show will also star Billy Campbell and Gregg Sulkin. Daren was ecstatic by the news and tweeted, “I’m living the dream. Thanks to all my fans. #Delirium #AlexSheathes.” Gregg also welcomed him to the cast saying, “Pumped about the delirium news. @darenkagasoff. Here we go. #Delirium.”
Do you think Daren makes a good Alex?
